So what if instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

Movie Night Invitations

For the past few years, we’ve celebrated the last day of school by gathering with friends and neighbors at a nearby drive-in theater to celebrate the last day of school. So I was happy to see this free printable invitation at Oh Happy Day. It’s perfect!

Jordan has promised to share more great ideas for throwing your own Movie Night, so be sure to visit her blog soon.

I’m thinking about making these Fruit Roll-Up Diplomas, or maybe even these, to hand out to the kids that night. I’ll have to wait and see what kind of week I’m having before I get too carried away…
